Amazon Web Services - Statistics & Facts

Amazon, founded in 1994, is the world’s largest online retailer of books, clothing, electronics, music and other goods and, in 2020, earned net sales revenue of over 380 billion U.S. dollars. Amazon’s service offerings have increased over the years and now include online and physical stores, retail third-party seller services, subscription services, Amazon Web Services (AWS), as well as other related services. Due to global interest in cloud services and the disruption they are causing across various sectors, AWS has played an increasingly important role in the cloud services industry and has become an important revenue earner for Amazon. Launched in 2006, AWS revenues amounted to more than 45 billion U.S. dollars in 2020.

Cloud market showing strong growth

The cloud market is growing rapidly and represents an important opportunity for the retail and IT giant. The overall cloud applications services (SaaS) market is expected to experience an annual growth rate of 16 percent in 2021, with cloud system infrastructure services (IaaS) and cloud application infrastructure services (PaaS) expected to grow at a rate of almost 27 percent and 26.6 percent respectively. In terms of market size, these individual cloud service segments are expected to achieve revenues of 145 billion U.S. dollars (SaaS), 71 billion U.S. dollars (PaaS), and 107 billion U.S. dollars (IaaS) by 2022.

Amazon and other US companies dominate the market

Amazon is among the largest hyperscale cloud providers, together with Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Alibaba. The hyperscalers outperform other companies in the market in terms of technological innovation, revenues generated, global scale, and expertise. Accordingly, AWS offers a wide range of cloud-based products that include databases, analytics, management tools, security, IoT, enterprise applications, and developer tools, among others. The company continuously expands its repertoire of services to meet its customers’ changing needs and thereby advances industry standards and practices. For this reason, many enterprises worldwide use AWS’ public cloud platform and infrastructure services to run their applications on, for example.
